The article sheds light on, how actors can cope with stability and change in business networks. By applying theoretical elements from the industrial network approach, and the organizational ambidexterity the phenomenon was studied in the context of operation and maintenance in offshore wind farms. We employed a qualitative research approach through a focus group interview and 20 semi-structured interviews. The findings revealed both activities and resources that can enhance the necessary development of stability. At the same time changes are necessary when striving for well performing wind farms. In order to achieve both stability and change knowledge sharing and collaboration play a crucial role in all the levels, i.e. in organizations, in relationship dyads and in the network.
